know. yesterday, on the 11th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the united states, the u.s. embassy in cairo released a statement that read, in part, "the embassy condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of muslims. as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions. they released that statement because there was an angry mob gathered outside, and that mob continued to gather as the day wore on. nearly five hours later, the state department confirmed the embassy had suffered a breach. protesters outside the embassy were reportedly there due to anger over a reported low-budget anti-muslim film made in the united states and posted on a youtube account. more on that film in a moment. by late afternoon, the compass embassy was reiterating its statement on twitter, one of the tweets read, "of course we condemn breaches of our compound. we're the ones actually living through this." a short time later, the state department confirmed the u.s. diplomatic mission in benghazi, libya, was under attack. searches for the british mo
of this campaign to win for the president and for the senator brown. his close ally in the united states senate. >> e.j., we just got a piece of an videotape in, an interview he did with nbc's ron allen. i want to play it for you and get your reaction afterwards. here it is. >> one thing you seem to have trouble convincing people of, you are the person that cares about middle class people, people are struggling. they don't see in your background and your comments the kind of empathy and understanding that could really solve their problems. >> i think people had the chance who watched our republican convention to see the lives i've had a chance to touch during my life. to understand that i served as a pastor of a congregation with people of all different backgrounds and economic circumstances. that i care very deeply about the american people and people of different socioeconomic circumstances. and i think throughout this campaign as well, we've talked about my record in massachusetts. don't forget, i got everybody in my state insured. 100% of the kids in our state have health insurance. i don't
with today. rowe talked about putting these people back to work and so has the president of the united states. when president obama tried to sell his jobs bill last year over the refusal of the republican congress, he talked about the kinds of people who would get those kinds of jobs. >> it's a bill that would put people back to work, rebuilding america. repairing our roads, repairing our bridges, repairing our schools. it would lead to jobs for concrete workers like the ones here at hilltop, jobs for construction workers and masons, carp carpenters, electricians, engineers, ironworkers. put folks back to work. >> mike rowe said part of the problem was training. >> jobs depend on opportunity and training. over and over, that's what i hear, we need more opportunity and we need better training. >> once again, there is a candidate who believes in job training, who understands we need more vocational training. >> one of the, i believe, mistakes we've made 20, 30 years ago was to start de-emphasizes vocational education. right now we've got shortages of folks in fields that need technical training
's happening in the united states. some people are telling -- >> we're going to have to -- >> don't vote because he's secretly a muslim. is there a war >> we're going to continue this discussion on our website. rula, thank you for joining me tonight. "the ed show" is up next. stay with us and watched this online. >>> good evening, americans, and welcome to "the ed show" from new york. thank you for joining us. we have breaking news off the top tonight. i think this may be one of the biggest turns of the campaign. today a recording of mitt romney at a private fundraiser has surfaced. it reveals his frank, candid opinion of nearly half of the american population. it was recorded without romney's knowledge. and it was provided to a magazine as well as nbc news's own michael isikoff. here's part of the tape. >> romney didn't know that was being recorded. he was speaking to donors. the romney campaign has responded tonight. mitt romney wants to help all americans struggling in the obama economy as he has made known all year. he is concerned about the growing number of people who are dependent
-thirds are devoted to foreign investments. maybe this is why romney's returns list the united states of america as a foreign country. you can understand the confusion. romney's blind trust investments also raised eyebrows. romney himself has called a blind trust an age-old rouge. instead, you can give a blind trust rules. but in his 2011 returns, romney didn't have many rules about chinese investments. mitt romney all along has been the candidate who says president obama did not stand up to china. romney has railed against china's trade tactics. >> my own view on the relationship with china is this. china is stealing our patents, our designs, know-how, brand names. they are hacking into our computers steeling information from not only corporate computers but government computers and manipulating their currency. for those who don't understand the impact of that, i have seen it. i have seen it. >> tough talk, right? none of these things stopped romney from allowing chinese investments into his portfolio. his returns show the romney family owning shares of a chinese oil company. romney dumped the
security at greater risk. >> last friday, mitt romney brought up the president of the united states, his birth certificate. they can't get away from that, but wait a minute, it was just a joke. but the day after the republican convention, speakers lined up to question president obama's americanness. is he really an american? president obama has been president of the united states for nearly four years and republicans are still questioning his values as an american citizen. it's the twisted version of the truth and it was embraced by everybody in the room. >> barack obama has a problem with the american dream. >> obama is stifling the american dream, primarily because it isn't his dream. >> what this administration has in mind for america isn't a renewal. it's a great leveling out. >> barack obama seems intent on enrolling more people on food stamps. >> president obama began his presidency with an apology tour. >> i know you're about ready to throw up, but please bear with me. it wouldn't be the republican national convention without more dishonesty about welfare and medicare. the republi
in the united states on a military plane from libya. president obama spoke of the sacrifice made by the foreign service workers. the president was joined by his national security team including secretary of state hillary clinton. overseas protests spread across 17 different countries in the middle east as anger mounted over a strange and mysterious and very low-budget film denigrating the prophet muham d muhammad. in cairo, one protester was killed today in a clash with police blocking the way to the u.s. embassy. we'll be monitoring the events in the middle east and will bring you developments immediately. back here, there has been a key question since the romney/ryan ticket launched their attack on the obama administration's handling of the events in libya and egypt. that question is, what would they is done differently? and the answer, according to the romney/ryan campaign, is if we were in charge, it never would have happened. and why wouldn't it have happened? one word. resolve. richard williamson, a romney foreign policy adviser said, quote, the respect for america has gone down. there's
. the obama campaign has also responded. it's shocking that a candidate for president of the united states would go behind closed doors and declare to a group of wealthy donors that half the american people view themselves as victims sbientitled to hando and are unwilling to take personal responsibility for their own lives. it's hard to serve as president for all americans when i have disdainfully written off half of the nation. that's exactly what mitt romney has done here with this statement behind closed doors. for months on this program, i have asked, will the real mitt romney stand up? we saw the real mitt romney. he did behind closed doors. he doesn't give a damn about those who needs assistance in this country and that we are a society, we are a country of compassion. we want to help people who are downtrodden. we want to help those who were dealt a tough deck of cards, whether it be in the economy, or whether it be health care, as of no fault of their own, or circumstances put on families that are totally out of their control. mitt romney wants to do away with those. he views those
of the united states call on people to pray for those lives lost? no he calls on people to observe a moment of silence and then go out and do some community service. he proclaims today as patriot day and national day of service and remembrance and go perform community service to remember those who lost their lives. >> he does say at the end of it that he signs it on the tenth day of september in the year of our lord, so god is mentioned there, but no mention of the word god anywhere in his message to the american people. >> not only is it petty, it's untrue. they forgot to mention president bush's patriot day prom la magss which did not include the word god either. and they also ignored one from last friday calling for a national day of prayer to commemorate 9/11 and asking americans to unify through god's grace. it's not surprising to see this kind of disrespect coming from fox news. but even republican leaders in the house used 9/11 to beat up the president over defense spending. >> the the best thing that we can do as a people to honor those individuals is to make sure that it never happ
became president of the united states. the romney/ryan plan, here's the list, folks. cut pell grants for more than nine million students, eliminate head start programs for two million children, and cut $5 billion in title one funding for low-income and special needs students. good plan? republicans want to cut funding for public education because, you see, they have a different plan. >> the great thing about charter schools is if they fail, you close them. you invoke their charter. i believe that difference is one of the reasons charter schools has been able to improve the quality of education of those students who beat their path to the door. >> really? improve? a study showed charter schools are twice as likely to underperform rather than overperform. but who cares when you can make a buck? we don't want to pay attention to stanford. speaking of money, this is the other reason ryan and romney, see i always put ryan's name first because that's really what the conservatives want. the reason why romney and ryan want to slash public education, here it is. >> the teachers unions are abl
're going to cut and what we're going to tax to get our treasury in order. but we've got a united states senator who backs up mitt romney and his rate, saying he is very generous. it's all a game. it's all a big game. make no mistake. romney gamed the tax code. he basically picked his own tax rate and his accountants played around with deductions so they could hit the predetermined rate near 14%. would you take it? meanwhile, romney still won't explain the specifics of his tax plan for you and me, americans. >> we bring down rates, we limit deductions and exemptions to keep the progressivity in the code and encourage growth in jobs. >> and the devil is in the details. what are we talking about? mortgage deduction? >> the devil is in the detail, the angel is in the policy which is creating more jobs. >> let's get one thing straight. tax cuts for the rich do not create jobs. this is the top marginal tax rate from 1948 to 2010. you be the judge. it's gone down quite a bit. here's unemployment over the same period. it's very hard to argue lower taxes do anything worthwhile for jobs, but romn
, this is in the middle of the united states senate campaign. can you believe that's where we are? >> it's outrageous: after lisa brown was banned from speaking on the floor after >>> good evening, americans and welcome to "the ed show" from new york. 42 days until the 2012 election and eight days until the first presidential debate. president obama and millions of americans are calling on billionaire owners to get rid of scab refs and bring back the union workers. tonight i'm camming out mitt romney for attacking some other working professionals. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> i think governor romney and a number of folks try to politicize the issue and do a lot of teacher bashing. >> the president goes after mitt romney on education. and right on cue, mitt romney goes after the teachers. >> the teachers union has a responsibility to care for the interests of the teachers. >> former governor howard dean and atlanta mayor react to mitt romney's educated mess. >>> scott walker and paul ryan come out against union busting. eugene robinson and bill roden on why the nfl gets what it paid fo
to be prepared to, you know, just coming on to the stage with the president of the united states gives you some gravitas right there. and typically in the first debate -- the challenger was declared the winner. so let's just keep in mind that we can't take anything for granted. let's focus on the ground game. we've got 40 days to go. >> you've got a good day one. that's for sure. congresswoman deb bie wasserman-schultz with us on "the ed show." thanks so much. answer tonight's question at the bottom of the screen. share your thoughts on twitter @edshow and facebook. we want to know what you think. >>> coming up, yes, there's another video of mitt romney. it has surfaced and shows his true identity of how he views middle class workers in america. we'll show you the video and robert reich will comment. sleep train's inventory clearance sale is ending soon. save 10%, 20%, even 35% on a huge selection of simmons and sealy clearance mattresses. get 2 years interest-free financing on tempur-pedic. even get free delivery! sleep train stacks the savings high to keep the prices low. but hurry, the inven
a record for a record high for the number of suicides in the united states military. then there are the multiple deployments that families go through, the military moms and dads waiting for their spouses to return home. romney said he spoke to the american legion and vfw, but that doesn't cut if. this is the party that practically coined the phrase, we support the troops. this is the party that demonized people who wouldn't wear the flag lapel pin. this is the party that always claimed to have the upper hand on protecting the country and national security and love of country. and accusing president obama of not being american enough and not loving the country, but mitt romney can't bring himself to n insert a paragraph about the troops in harm's way right now and have been there multiple times in his acceptance speech? i think it is the ultimate quis qualifier. here's senator john kerry addressing the issue last night. >> no nominee for president should ever fail in the midst of a war to pay tribute to our troops overseas in his acceptance speech. mitt romney, mitt

incredible disappointment. i mean, disappointment in that you have a candidate for president of the united states of america, from one of our two major parties, who essentially, very easily and dismissi ivived wrote off half the country. what about the 20 million senior citizen who don't pay income taxes? are they victims? what about our veterans? what about middle class, hard-working families? it's just -- it's just incredibly disappointing. and i'll tell you, just a quick story. i was home in my district this morning, and i was in a supermarket. and i was ordering lunch. and the woman on the other side of the counter recognized me. and she said, oh, my gosh, she said, what that man said -- she said, i'm not a victim. i mean, this is how deeply that has sunk in. that's what i think the problem is. >> i think it is sinking in. and republicans in senate and house races, as i said just a moment ago, are going to have to go home and answer to this. what do they think about this? this is putting them in a real tough spot. do you really think that this is going to affect races? is this a real o
, there was revolution and they came back to the united states. and my dad had to get help, financial help, the government helped his family to be able to get on their feet again. by the way, that's the way america works. we have big hearts. we care for people who have needs. we help get them back. we help lift them up. then we don't make that a permanent lifestyle. we don't have them become government dependents. we help people. they get them on their feet. and then they build a brighter future. >> where was this belief system when romney was talking to the big money crowd back in may? romney sounds a heck of a lot different than the guy in boca raton who made a character judgment about half country. >> these are people who pay no income tax. 47% of americans pay no income kax. our message of low taxes doesn't connect. out there talking about tax cuts to the rich. that's what they sell every four years, and so my job is not to worry about those people. they should take personal responsibility -- >> okay, so mitt romney seems confused. wait a minute. other republicans have complete clarity
have a campaign tied with an incumbent president of the united states. >> he could be right or he could be incredibly disastrously wrong. make no mistake the 47% statements were a game changer. there is no longer any doubt what the two sides believe. the comments allowed president obama to go out on a message of inclusiveness, a message you'll hear a lot more about in the next 46 days. >> the values we believe in just don't belong to the workers, the 53%, the 47%, rich or poor or 99%. these are american values. they belong to all of us! >> now, compare those comments with mitt romney's final words on the hidden video from florida. >> one of the benefits is eating the world's best dessert, which i will. >> romney may have eaten the world's best dessert at that fund-raiser but on the campaign trail the only thing he can find right now is raw crow. what's is going to be like the next 46 days? how about this weekend? how is he going to begin to turn it around? the best thing he can do right now is call up tom cruise, the actor, and ask him about that thing he put together, i think a couple

of the united states of leading from behind. as president, romney says that he would take a different approach to solve conflict in the middle east. he would do nothing. back in may speaking to the same group of donors at the private fundrais fundraiser, romney dismissed prospects for peace between israel and the palestinians. >> joining me tonight political analyst richard wolf. he studied foreign policy. the white house says that romney is offering the wrong approach. a top diplomat told bloomberg news that romney shows complete ignorance of facts and realities. but kick the ball down the field, doesn't this fly in the face of all of the criticism that romney has thrown at president obama? unpack if for us. >> i'm not a psychologist, but i think this is what they call projects. you say the other person is doing something, but really that's what you intend. american leadership in the world is absolutely critical. if you believe, and this is the romney position, this is the republican position, that actually this president has been running a feckless foreign policy. he hasn't shown leadership.
